Lane,
I know what it's like to lose a parent and it's a very sad time. Know that your dad has been lifted up in prayer from many people since we found out his time was short. I have fond memories of the day Pat, you and I met your dad at the Longhorn. I got to see Jim's red Cadillac which was beautifully maintained. I'll always remember how your dad invited me to stop by the Lariat any afternoon to have a beer with him. May he rest in peace.

Geary, I am sorry for your loss. Your Father seemed like a good man who served his Country and had a love for cars and his family. He must've been a good man because he raised a good son.

Geary, I am sorry for the loss of your Father. A very nice tribute to a good man who served our country and had a love for cars and his family. He must have passed down his passion for people because you are an example of his kindness.
